RSSOwl is a free RSS / RDF / Atom Newsreader written in Java using SWT as graphic library.
RSS ("Really Simple Syndication" or "Rich Site Summary") is a document specification
that gives users the power to collect and organize Web-based news and information in
a more efficient manner. Applications that collect data from RSS-compliant sites are
called RSS readers or "aggregators". RSSOwl is such an application. It lets you gather,
organize, update, and store information from any compliant source in a convenient, easy
to use interface, save selected information in various formats for offline viewing and
sharing, and much more.
Why "Owl"? The owl is a traditional symbol of wisdom, and a quiet, efficient hunter. You'll find
RSSOwl's "big eyes" a big help when scanning the Web's vast array of RSS resources.
